Vice President Siim Kallas accepts Pavel Telička's resignation as TEN-T European Cooordinator
Transport Commissioner Vice-President Siim Kallas today (30 June) accepted the resignation of Pavel Telička as European Coordinator for the North Sea – Baltic Core Network transport corridor on his election to the European Parliament. "I want to put on record my thanks and those of the Commission to Pavel for the work which he has carried out for DG MOVE over the last 9 years - first on the "Rail Baltic" project and latterly as the first European Coordinator for the North Sea – Baltic TEN-T Corridor. With the agreement last week on a shareholders' agreement and the Joint Declaration of the Baltic Prime Ministers over the weekend, the "Rail Baltic" project is now firmly back on track and this is in no small way due to the negotiating skills and knowledge of transport issues which Pavel has displayed since 2005. I wish him well in his new career as a member of the European Parliament and hope that he will continue his involvement in transport issues."
